The Country look

One of the big trends for fall this year is the Country Look.   Lots of plaids and tweeds, and all sorts of chunky boots and heavy layering.  Growing up in rural North Carolina and spending my vacations visiting Washington and New England, I grew up around this kind of style.  It was never considered cool, or fashionable to wear big plaid shirts under denim jackets, or to belt a tweed coat.  For the people I grew up surrounded by, it was just another way to keep warm.  The big chunky boots that seem to be so popular these days, are the same kind that we used to have as kids to much around in,  and the baggy pants and unlaced shoes are what we would wear when we were on our way to the river.  It is interesting to see childhood fashions glamed up, and I am in no way against this new fad; I just urge people to not take it lightly, because if not structured correctly, you could very easily look like your on your way to feed the cows.
